The Best Date of My Life

We decided that it was high time that we went on a date, just the two of us. 
We mutually decided on pizza, I like this about him, he lets us decide together instead of forcing me to make all the decisions, or him always deciding. 
We got a booth, just for the two of us. 
We shared a pizza, just for the two of us. 
It was perfect.  I said "I love you" and he leaned over to give me a kiss.
We decided to have the best of both worlds and have a warm brownie (my favorite) with icecream (his favorite) for dessert.  We ate it all until the plate was clean. 
He was a perfect gentleman and held the door for me and held my hand whenever I grabbed it.
Yep, the best date of my life. 

Now I just have to bath him and put him to bed.

You see I've always thought that my sons and I would every so often have a date night.  Jacob and I haven't had a date night, just the two of us at a restaurant since he came home to me.  We ate together when we were meeting eachother in the city but since being home we just haven't done it.  We've gone to the movies together but not to a restaurant without other people joining in.  So tonight was the night. 
I feel like crap, I have a horrible hacking cough on top of my badly bruised ribs I felt it was the perfect night to dress up and go out together.  Of course we could have both just got into our pj's, ordered pizza, and sat on the couch cuddled up and not left the house, but that wouldn't have been a date now would it?! 
I'm so glad we went and it is going to be a tradition, not every week but every so often just Jacob and I will go on a date.

LOVE this! I was raised by a single mom, and date night was always my favorite. So much so that my hubby and I alternate "dates" with each of our 4 boys!
